Treat Your Sleep Apnea Symptoms
We’ll help you get an accurate diagnosis of your sleep problems through a physician-reviewed sleep study. Once you have a diagnosis, Dr. Miller will design a treatment plan for you, working along with your general practitioner to ensure that you receive the best, most comprehensive treatment available.
Like other sleep apnea sufferers we have treated, you may be able to avoid using a CPAP machine. While effective, many patients have trouble getting used to CPAP therapy and quit using it altogether – which is no help at all for your sleep apnea symptoms. An oral appliance offers a simple, much more comfortable sleep apnea solution.
Avoid Sleep Apnea Complications
Sleep apnea occurs when you stop breathing during your sleep. The most common type of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea, which is caused by your tongue and other soft tissues in your throat relaxing to the point that your airway is blocked.
When this happens, you wake up momentarily – usually without any knowledge of it – and take in a few breaths. Then you drift off to sleep again until the next episode occurs. For sufferers of severe sleep apnea, this cycle can repeat hundreds of times per night!
In addition, sleep apnea has been linked to serious health issues such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and depression. Treating your sleep apnea can help you avoid big health concerns in the future.
